Bids pending for deepwater North Port Fouad 3D seismic survey

Offshore staff

DUBLIN, Ireland – Data from a 3D seismic survey over the deepwater North Thekah block in the Gulf of Suez offshore Egypt is under analysis, according to partner Petroceltic.

The survey was acquired earlier this year. Results will be used to plan exploration drilling.

Tendering for another 3D survey over the adjacent deepwater North Port Fouad block will start in 4Q, Petroceltic said.

North Port Fouad is next to the Shorouk block where Eni recently discovered a potential 30 tcf of gas in the Zohr field.

The Zohr-1 exploration well was drilled 3 km (1.9 mi) from the western boundary of North Port Fouad, so there is a possibility part of the field could overlap into Petroceltic’s concession. The company is looking to farm out part of its interest.
